Sproing!

MOT time!

And this year's surprise repairs are... a snapped front coil spring, and a worn-out pair of rear brake pads. I'm honestly surprised I haven't left more bits of suspension on the Havant bypass - for many years, the A27 from Chichester to Havant had potholes that were genuinely bigger than my car. The brake pads I've been half-expecting for a while after Kwik-Fit commented on them when I got new tyres last year, though they sailed through last year's MOT without any issues (at the time Kwik-Fit were insistent that I needed new pads and discs all round).

The pandemic has done interesting things to my driving journeys. I normally clock up 500 or so miles a month (the pasta night journeys do add up)... and since lockdown started back in March I've done about a tenth of that. Or less - in April, I drove a whole 12.3 miles!
